Samsung B2100 Marine Mobile Phone

 

Samsung's Marine is an all conditions rugged handset with plenty of features.

National Geographic Xplorer (Samsung B2100)

 

The National Geographic Xplorer has a stylish, rugged body, a flashlight, an FM radio, and two phone numbers.

The Xplorer's call quality could be better, and it has a proprietary charger and a shared charging and headset port. Data is pricey and the cost of placing calls can quickly add up.

Globe-trotters seeking a ready-made travel solution will appreciate the Xplorer's convenient Talk Abroad SIM. However, mounting expenses for a basic rugged handset will turn away existing GSM phone owners.

Review of the Samsung Xplorer B2100

 

A review of the Samsung Xplorer B2100, a phone made for those people who enjoy the rugged outdoors or like taking a bath with their phones.

The Samsung Xplorer B2100 is a very well made and very cheap phone. Everything performs relatively well, with the exception of the muffled sound quality, which gets worse if dunked in water.

As with its Sonim rival, the Samsung B2100 has IP57 certification. This means that it has a high degree of dust protection and can also be immersed in up to 1 metre of water, in other words.. the B2100 is fully waterproof under most practical...

Samsung Solid Extreme B2100 review

 

It's harder than most and can survive underwater - but is it right for you?

Waterproofing ; Tough build quality ; Decent music player ; MicroSD card support ; Excellent call quality

No 3G ; Low quality 1.3-megapixel camera ; Basic Wap browser ; Rubbery keypad ; No USB cable or memory card supplied

Although as a day-to-day handset most users will find the Samsung Solid Extreme a limited device compared to a wide range of similarly priced models, its waterproof durability gives the phone a unique individual appeal. It may not be a mass-market...

Samsung Solid Extreme

 

The Samsung Solid Extreme B2100 has potential as a no-nonsense second handset option for extreme sports and outdoors leisure enthusiasts

Waterproofing, Tough build quality, Decent music player, MicroSD card support, Excellent call quality

No 3G, Low quality 1.3-megapixel camera, Basic Wap browser, Rubbery keypad, No USB cable or memory card supplied

That entry-level feature count is reflected in its budget pricing – it joins Samsung line-up at around £80-£100 on pre-pay or SIM-free (it's free with contract deals). Consequently, we can see this phone having plenty of appeal as a secondary handset...

Designed for outdoor durability, what does Sandra think of the Samsung Solid Extreme B2100?

The backplate fits very snugly and can only be removed by using a coin, screwdriver or something similar to unlock it. I found a fingernail was not tough enough for this job.

Samsung B2100 Solid Extreme review

 

If you tend to break phones by dropping them, or like to chat underwater, the rugged Samsung B2100 Solid Extreme can help. But, except for its built-in torch, this inexpensive phone skimps on features

Bash-resistant ; Waterproof ; Built-in torch ; Long battery life

Very basic features ; Dated user interface ; Poor screen ; Rubber keys are hard to press ; No 3G

Conclusion The Samsung B2100 Solid Extreme is certainly solid, shrugging off our watery tests. But, other than a torch, it offers rock-bottom features to match its bargain-basement price tag. The splash-proof B2700 has a couple more features for around...

Ruggedised phones are usually chunky, clunky and ugly. Can the slimline Solid Extreme bring some glamour to the scene?

Low-resolution screen aside, this is a decent-looking rugged phone that's as tough as old boots

Samsung B2100 Review

 

"The small 1.7-inch screen shouldn't be too bad for text messaging but video playback might be a bit of a strain."

While the Samsung B2100's 1.3-megapixel camera won't win you any photography awards, it's better than no camera at all and the built-in music player means you can use it as an mp3 player as well. The small 1.7-inch screen shouldn't be too bad for text...
